So, What’s Next?

How many of you are asking the question, what’s next? There are many directions we can take, so many paths. Many of us have used this time as an opportunity to reflect on how we see the world around us, how we respond in times of crisis, and what we can do better. We can … Read more

Raising Biracial Daughters

It’s hard to know who you will fall in love and have children with. As a child, I’m not sure most of us would recognize the differences in the boys we are attracted to. What I mean by differences, is the color of their skin, are they short or tall, thin or heavy. As I … Read more

Racism Does Exist!

The picture above may say it all. Why was a person of color, jogging down a road, and followed by armed white individuals shot down? Why did it take 74 days for arrests to be made? Would this have happened if the person who was shot was white? Racism does exist in our community, in … Read more

Women Workforce

Since it is Labor Day, I want to write a little something about our labor force and how women have become, and are a big part of it. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, including women. To some, Labor Day also means or symbolizes the end of summer, and … Read more

If I Were Caught

Procrastination gets the best of me, especially when there is always something else to do. My deadline is a week away but at the moment all I care about is grabbing a cold beer and watching the game. I was at my neighborhood bar, walking distance, just a few blocks, no reason to drive—I knew … Read more
